Frank B. Couture III

April 20, 1961 ~ October 13, 2021 (age 60)


Frank B. Couture III (Chip) of Warren, Michigan passed away peacefully in the early morning of Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at age 60.

Born April 20, 1961, in Detroit, Michigan, he is the eldest son of Frank and Carole Couture.

Frank is survived by his mother Carole, siblings Thomas (Teri), Robert (Marianne), Patrick (Michele) and Renee (Brian) Katopol and is preceded in death by his father, Frank, and grandparents.  He will be dearly missed by his family and friends. 

Frank was a kid at heart and loved to make people laugh.  He had a lifelong love of sports, especially baseball and also played youth ball.  He was a fan of our hometown Tigers and Red Wings but the NY Yankees were his favorite, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

The Couture family will receive guests at the funeral home from 3:00 – 8:00 PM, with a 7:00 PM Rosary Service on Monday, October 18, 2021.

A Funeral Mass to celebrate Frank’s life will be held at 9:30 AM (in state 9:00 AM) at St. Aidan Catholic Church, 17500 Farmington Road, Livonia on Tuesday, October 19, 2021.

Frank will be laid to rest alongside his father at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Southfield, Michigan.

The family would like to thank all those who cared for and supported Frank, and our Mom, throughout his illness and his journey to eternal life with God.

I am too tired to move on, or to mind paths traveled.

Where I find moonlight and gentle breezes, I shall unload, lay down and rest in peace.
